It may be related to the fledgling community of Chinese cyber activists cn4iran. There may be a tit-for-tat hacker feud between pro-gov Iranians and Chinese going on as we speak.

Seems baidu is being blocked from users outside of Greater China--when I'm on my company's US vpn, I can't access it, but I can from our HK vpn.

Woah! Maybe they Chinese will realize that they need help.

Chinese hackers are still hacking the Iranian website as a respond to Iranian attack to the Baidu.
